WOW!Rach.... just wow!
Well I'm guessing you A) are pretty tall and have normally proportioned hands (B) have huge hands compared to your short body (kinda like that dude in that episode of the simpsons who has a whole speech on his hand)
or (C) can dislocate a finger on demand

I can do C-E (octave+M3rd), but can't do Bb-D (octave+M3rd). What gives?

I have some music I'd like to write that includes things like C(-1)-C0-G2-E3 (octave+double_octave_5th+M6th) in the left hand and C5-E5-G5-G7-C8-E8-G8-G9 (Cmaj_chord,another 2 octaves higher,octave) in the right hand. Any suggestions?

Taller people are more likely to have big hands, long fingers, long arms which give them some advantage in playing piano.

.....but we don't want to ask so direct. \:D

My height in feet and inches is the same as my Vogel 177T. - 5'10".

I have to start thinking in Algebra word problems. I'm starting a math class on June 27th!
